Assessment of body weights in C57BL/6 and ApoE−/− mice. Body weight was determined weekly throughout the chronic exposure (30-day) paradigm. Body weight increased throughout the chronic exposure for (a) C57BL/6 male mice and (b) ApoE−/− male mice, aged 6–8 weeks. Normalization of body weight to initial weight reveals significant reduction in growth due to UFP + G exposure in (c) C57BL/6 male mice at week four and in (d) ApoE−/− male mice starting at week two. n = 7–8 per group, *p < .05; **p < .01; ***p < .001
